The soil excavated at Kajigaya site is shipped to Chiba and is supposed to be used for quarry reclamation.

Mitsubishi Heavy to back out of maglev train project

Quote:
TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, one of Japan's leading engineering companies, will withdraw from a 9 trillion yen ($82 billion) prestigious high-speed railway project as it struggles to deal with ballooning developments costs of its other mainstream projects such as a passenger jet.
...
Mitsubishi Heavy's withdrawal "won't impact the scheduled opening since we plan to select the manufacturers of commercial-use maglev train cars separately" from those for prototypes, a high-ranking JR Tokai official said.
...
The headline sounds really bad but it seams like it's no big deal.

I expect that Nippon Sharyo, Kawasaki Heavy Industries or Hitachi Rail Systems to bid on the trainsets for the Chuo Shinkansen. Not likely are J-TREC (because of its ownership by JR East) and Kinki Sharyo (because of its partial ownership by JR West).

Japan’s new maglev train line runs headlong into critics

The Tokyo to Osaka line may have too high a cost and too few benefits

Well, it was free for the time being. It seems you were not fast enough. Too bad. You're welcome.

It was a facebook post on FT's wall and by clicking on it I was able to read it without any kind of subscription.

Is this really the most important issue regarding the project? Anyone can purchase a 4 weeks unlimited trial for a dollar. Lets move on, shall we?

google the headline and you'll get to the article, linking it here will give you the paywall.

I don't disagree with the article. There's nothing that the 土建国家 loves more than a massive construction project. I think it's very exciting technology, but pointless on a corridor that's already so well serviced, and really not good given that it's likely to contribute to the further centralisation of Japan in to Tokyo.
Given the unhappy state of affairs with the population, it makes one wonder how long it'll even be necessary for?

Maglev Shinkansen work proceeds at Shinagawa



Quote:
TOKYO (Jiji Press) — Central Japan Railway Co., or JR Tokai, showed the media early Saturday underground construction work at Shinagawa Station in Tokyo for its Chuo Shinkansen magnetic levitation ultra high-speed train line.

As part of work to construct new platforms some 40 meters underground, an iron girder was installed to replace track ballast and railroad ties that supported a portion of the existing Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train rail tracks.

It will take three years to complete the replacement work for two eastbound and as many westbound maglev train tracks in the new platforms, totaling some 1,550 meters, according to JR Tokai.

The company will construct the new platforms at Shinagawa Station under the platforms of the Tokaido Shinkansen line.

Iron girders will support the existing Shinkansen train tracks to prepare for the removal of soil under the existing platforms. The installation work started in May.

Soon after midnight Friday, some 100 personnel began the work. After cutting and removing railway tracks, they took away wooden and concrete railroad ties as well as track ballast.
